The gray one...
He's rather large if that helps any.
wild guess---Chinchilla. It's pretty.
I agree - Chinchilla - It is hard to tell from a top view. Easier from the side. Doesn't have a head on it like a Flemish from what I can tell.
Thank you very much!
Upon further research, I'm pretty certain you're correct. I believe this guy is a hold-over from the days when the family here used to raise meat rabbits.
I've been asked to find another one and with this guy being so nice and doing so well in our climate, I figure I'll try to find another one of the same breed.
You say he is large. How large? Flemish Giant rabbits can average 16 - 18 pounds and higher. If he is that big he could be a grey or silver Flemish.
If the paws look like they're made out of tiny, tiny toes, it's a chinchilla. Chinchillas also stand on their hind legs to eat. The fore legs hold the food. They also drink very little water and have tiny, elongated, almost dry poops.
Rabbits have round droppings, urinate much more and often eat their droppings.
There is a breed of rabbits that is called chinchilla.
It looks exactly like a chinchilla rabbit I had when I was a kid. They get very big too (--though I dont remember if they get as large as the Flemish).
Quote:Not quite as big as a Flemish but they are large.
Beautiful color! Fur looks luxurious!
Sorry, but I have no idea.
